Book: Israel Regardie And The Philosophers Stone The Alchemical Arts Brought Down To Earth by Joseph Lisiewski

In this book, Dr. Lisiewski delves into the hitherto unknown role Israel Regardie played in the world of Practical Laboratory Alchemy: not the world of idle speculation and so-called inner alchemy, but the realm of the test tube and the Soxhlet Extractor. Revealed for the first time are Regardie's own private alchemical experiments, his intense interaction with Frater Albertus of the Paracelsus Research Society, and later, with the author himself. All is laid plain, taken from Dr. Lisiewski's extensive personal notes and recollections of his lengthy association with both men. Learn of the first meeting between Regardie and Frater Albertus; their involvement with the Rosicrucian Order and years of struggle in Alchemy; and alchemical work they and the author explored. Such work includes preparation of the Ancient Planetary and Antimony Tinctures; the Herbal Stone; as well as the darkly fantastic processes of miniature animals and the Homunculus. With an extensive Introduction by Mark Stavish, well-known author and Director of the Institute for Hermetic Studies, this book is destined to become the definitive work on Israel Regardie and his virtually unknown role in the practice of the Secret Art and Science that is Laboratory Alchemy, while revealing processes in the practical application of this occult work that has never appeared in print before! What an amazing book! In fact, it is truly unique in both its storyline and practical comprehensiveness. I had a hard time putting this one down once I had started reading it. Personally, I feel that for the occult reader, the price is an absolute steal as I would have easily paid double that and then some. This is truly an account of history intermeshed with practical alchemy (not the armchair alchemy that most waste their time pursuing). What I find most fascinating is not only the breadth of knowledge contained in the book (and within Lisiewski himself in many different areas of the occult), but also the way in which Regardie and Albertus are represented. It is human nature to place occult legends such as these on a glorious pedestal to be praised by all future generations of seekers. However, I have always respected Lisiewski's penchant for telling it like it is. He, in effect, represents them for what they truly are: Human Beings (nothing more, nothing less). Furthermore, he lifts the veil on exactly what true alchemy is all about. It is not simply for the purposes of turning lead into gold, as is so often stated by the mainstream. The fundamental basis is the spiritual unfoldment of the individual. In fact, this is absolutely necessary to achieve the alchemical results being sought in the material world. In the end, the intense, painstaking work that is inherent in the practice of alchemy leads one to something deeper. Hopefully, by reading this book one will begin to get a sense of exactly what this 'something deeper' truly is...
